April 16, 2012

Binary globeElectronic Protected Health Information (EPHI) is any “individually identifiable health information maintained in electronic media or transmitted or maintained in any other form or medium”.  As you can imagine, that could include everything from a patient’s name to private medical history.  Basically, anything that would identify someone.  Any number of pieces of EPHI could be on a mobile device in order for a physician to serve his or her patient.  Due to sensitivity of the information, it must be secured.
